Cochin Bantams are one of the most recognizable breeds of chicken. They are incredibly distinctive with their ball-shaped bodies, massively feathered legs, and plumed, round tails. They have short single combs and expressive little faces.
Many people first venturing into the world of backyard chickens have some form of space constraint. Either they can only own a few chickens in their city, or they have limited space to keep them in. Bantam chickens provide a wonderful alternative to their full size counterparts. They are tiny, lively, and come in any possible color.
